I need Chef John to make this for me! Kind of freaked me out and the first batch I burned, so keep in mind how well your pot holds heat. I have a very heavy cast iron pot which I used both times. The first time I follwed instructions completley. The second time as soon as the sugar melted, and was still light in color, I moved to a different burner. Did not take long from there for the sugar to turn dark and smoke then I continued as directions say. I'm making a apple crisp cheesecake which I will use this on top of...If there is still some left come Thanksgiving day! Also, as someone who has never tried homemade caramel and am use to the bottle at the store kind. The flavor on this can't be compared. Don't expect the store, overly sweet stuff. This has a little bitter bite to it. I added about 1/2 tsp vanilla at the end to lighten that up a bit.
